After having such a positive experience with our older daughter at Black Bear, we decided to enroll our 2-year-old and have been very pleased.  At every level they are willing to work with you to find a customized program and schedule that works for your family.  And the experience for the kids could not be any better.  Our kids absolutely love going to school.  It has to be the kindest group of teachers I’ve ever encountered.  You can tell how much they enjoy their jobs and it shows in how they treat the kids.  Black Bear is an extremely warm and welcoming environment. ~ John Lawrence

Liz, It is hard to believe that the boy who wept everyday he had to go to [that other preschool/academy] last fall is the same boy begging us for extended day classes! Thank you and everyone at BBA for all that you’ve done and are doing.  ~ Current Black Bear Family

Kristen, On behalf of my family, I cannot even begin to thank you and all of the people at Black Bear! You have helped [our boy] so much, we can’t even begin to thank you enough. To say [he] loved going there everyday is an understatement. Not to mention the peace of mind you gave me and Gigi over the past years. Though this is your career that you worked and studied long and hard to achieve, I bet through all of your years in school, you never could have imagined the impact, impressions, and affects you would have on the children you would work with. [Our son] would be your testimonial. Know this, whenever you have a rough day, or if things seem to be veering from the correct direction, Think of [our boy]. Know that [he] is out there, a product of your teachings, happy, loving, caring and better from all the help you gave him. If you ever need reassurance of the impact you and all the staff at Black Bear have made, think of [him]! Know that our family has been better served, educated, and cared for from you and Black Bear. You helped [our child] find and achieve skills, that no one else could have done. You have earned the trust and friendship of a beautiful little Boy, and the eternal gratitude from Gigi and Myself! We are open to the opportunity to have you help [our son] (if need be) in the future. The (KIT) Program would be a benefit to him, and we will keep you in mind. Plus, [he] would love it! Please pass this on to the other members of the team, and thank them as well. If you, or any of the team, need a recommendation, a testimonial, panel discussion, etc., please feel free to reach out to us. We would be glad to help. ~ With Sincerest Gratitude, Joe, Gigi, and [Our Boy]

Hi Maureen, As we gear up for SK graduation and the end of the year, Jesse and I have been reflecting on what a great experience we have had at Black Bear. We’re sad to close this chapter even though we are so excited about joining the North Park community. Know that we always sing BB’s praises for the excellent individualized attention, high standards, and overall warm and sweet environment, and we will continue to be supporters in the future. Your teachers are top-notch and the kids soar as a result. Thanks for all your work and for making our girls’ experience so positive.  ~ Nikki
